Praising Popcaan for back-to-school treat

Published:Saturday | August 25, 2018 | 12:00 AM


I would like to take the time out to commend dancehall deejay Andrae Hugh Sutherland, known professionally as Popcaan, who hails from St Thomas, for his effort in putting on a back-to-school treat held at the Rudolph Elder Park in Morant Bay on Thursday, August 23.

It was a spectacular event! On behalf of those who were in attendance, I say thanks for the treat. Although he was not able to satisfy everyone, many in attendance enjoyed the food and refreshment, rides for the kids, and school stationery.

As a youth-empowerment advocate, I am very intrigued with the effort, because the parish has a lot of students with potential and who are in need of support. The event was well planned.

I must also commend those in attendance for the discipline displayed, so there was no need for police intervention. Over the years, the music fraternity, as well as sponsors, has always been generous in giving back to communities for a worthy cause. And the 'Unruly Boss' has again played his part in giving back.
